I like to go to our Natural Grocers store.  It is fairly new and is a very friendly store.  Most everything is organic and prices are very good.  I got almonds for $3.49 a pound for the whole ones and $4.48 for the slivered.  I like to use the slivered in my Christmas breads.  Oatmeal is just over a dollar a pound and I like the thick oats.  Their produce is beautiful and I got a huge bunch of  organic red leaf lettuce for $2.

Ann, when we lived in Maine, my Dad worked in Portsmouth.  The natural grocery we have here just arrived a few months ago.  Their stuff is great.  I couldn't believe the size of the bunch of lettuce I got for $2.  it would hardle cram into the bag.

Bought 3# shelled walnuts that were on sale for $ 4.49# ( I now have a stockpile of 7# since I was buying 1 or 2 each sale), also bought 8oz, of pecans on sale for $ 4.49 and Kraft marshmallows were on sale for $ .99 (reg. price is $ 1.49 a bag) and I had 4 coupons $ .40 each & since the store will not double duplicates, I bought a chocolate, a gingerbread, a chocolate mint & a strawberry and paid $ .19 for each bag.  I would have bought more nuts, but I bought a 9 1/2 # whole sirloin tip roast for $ 2.99# & Dec. grocery money is almost gone Cry. I also bought several pounds of cheese that was on sale for $ 2.99#. 
 I have to decide how I want to cut the sirloin for the freezer, but I have time, the sell by date on it is Dec. 28.

OMG, our Sprouts store is having a sale on almonds for $2.99 a lb. in the
bulk bins. It is just 3 days!! Today, Sat. and Sun!! I am going to stock up.
They have never had it this cheap before.  They must be trying to get
more people in their stores on the weekend! I wish they would have a
sale on walnuts and pecans.  Yippee!!! I am going to make some spiced
nuts!

The prices of nuts this year is just that, NUTS!  Last week I found sliced and whole almonds for $2.99 a pound.  Even though I still have lots from a previous sale, I bought some more to use in cookies.  What I don't use up will go in the freezer, either whole or ground, for future baking.

Let's hope there are some great sales after the holidays.

I have a healthy respect for farmers.  But I am sure the farmer would be overjoyed to get $8.49 a pound for his pecans.  Once the truckers, processors, packers, distributors, advertisers and supermarkets get their cut I just wonder how much the farmer really gets.
Just like the farmer of any grain, how much of that $3.00 box of cereal does he get?
That doesn't even take into account the farmer that raised that beef that will be sitting on my Christmas table at $6.00 a pound.

Nikki,  The price of walnuts and pecans are really high. Last year Sprouts had
the walnuts on sale for $2.99 a lb. I have been getting my walnuts at Costco
because they are cheaper. I'm going to freeze some of my almonds!

I refuse to buy pecans at the price they are selling them for.Walnuts are $5/ lb. and that's bad enough.I wonder what the Grocers would do if no one bought nuts ? Guarantee there would be a big sale on nuts! lol ! It's early and I'm up so I'll start my shopping list for this week.Famous brand cake mix is on sale and with the coupons I have they will cost me .25 cents a box,nice to have on hand for a quick cake.I buy yellow cake and use that for pineapple upside down cake and dump cake.
